If you have the symbols "<", ">" as text in the editor, when you use HtmlFormatProvider or HtmlDataProvider to export the document, these characters will be escaped and will appear as < and > in the resulting HTML string. This ensures that the document will look correctly if viewed in a browser right away or imported back in the editor.
Perhaps, at some point you have set the text of the editor to "<b>testing</b>" instead of using HtmlFormatProvider to import it and have it appear as testing. If you are not able to resolve the issue, we would appreciate a sample demo, so that we can see your implementation and advise you further.
